I planed to do a long write up about the 18th century Halloween party I attended two weeks ago, but now I feel more like just some quick word then on to the pictures.
As previously mentioned I didn’t had the time to make a mourning gown for the party, (I did however take one evening to make a new cap). Instead I wore my pretty recently finished Autumn Anglaise, paired with my new lace cuffs and cap.A mirror selfie before leaving the house.
The location and settings for the party was perfect (even if it took me one hour to find the way to the house).
I had such a good time at the party. I danced, chatted and meet several really nice new people.Photo by Jennifer Garner

And a scary laboratory with lots of creepy and disgusting objects.
We think this is whats left from the masters latest lost servant…
The paintings on the walls are actual 18th century renderings.
One of the musicians – At least I got one sharp photo.
Elisa from “Isis Wardrobe” – If you haven’t found her blog yet, you seriously missed out…

Well at least one of the photos taken during the evening was of me…Courtesy of Folke Bagger – or not, depends how you look at it :-).
I had such a good time and I’m determent to get some proper mourning gear for next years party…Love my “after event hairdo”, perhaps I should consider doing the Mohawk on a more regular basis…

I’d love to know what did you make your fichu out of?
It is made of ivory polyester organdy, but feels more like chiffong.
It was really nice finally meeting you!
And you too!
I hope you had fun in Finland, can’t wait to see the pictures 🙂
What an amazing venue for a party!
Yeah, I think so to.
